According to Big M, Goodwood Revival with all its shiny vintage cars, brass bands and folks in period attire is the best event of the year. For four years in a row now we have been making our way down to Chichester, putting on a bit of classic attire ourselves (to be fair, Big M […]
That’s that then. I have been clinging on to the last days of summer like a koala to a leafless eucalyptus tree, but today’s rain has washed away my last meagre hopes for some sunny days. It’s been a long summer, and a good one too. So good and so eventful in fact, that I […]
I am still here, down in France, trying to get a dubious little USB stick (how can anything that goes by the name dongle be taken seriously, let alone WORK?!) to provide me with Internet. HAHA. I have been sold the wrong thing for my Mac, having been ill informed by a shop assistant who […]
The past few weeks have been oddly exhausting. Not because of what has happened; rather because of what could have happened. It’s all good news (or potentially none at all), but still, being kept in limbo for weeks, depending on a multitude of other people to make it happen (or not) has been wearing me […]

There is my husband’s native Sweden, my own birthplace Austria, Germany (the country we both grew up in) and Switzerland […]
Wellies – check. Scarves and mittens – check. Spa booking – check. Have a happy half-term!
My swanky lifestyle* required me to travel to Dusseldorf last week. This is (kind of) a travel report. In pictures. And colour. The journey started off rather civilized with a meal and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Boozing for lunch? You guessed right, I hadn’t left British territory by then. Ever since getting over the initial […]
Stockholm always has a soothing effect on me. Surrounded by clean water and crisp air, decorated with beautiful buildings and healthy looking people who smile at you with their big, straight white teeth, beach blond hair waving in the wind – Sweden is reliably fulfilling its clichés. Sweden gives me an instant holiday feeling. And […]
And plenty of things have been going on… There’s been lots of driving.
